Miley Cyrus kicked off her Bangerz release with a visit to “Today.” Fresh off her “SNL” appearance, the pop star shut down Rockefeller Plaza with a performance of her hits including “Party in the USA” and “Wrecking Ball.” Accompanied by some twerking little people and dancing rainbows and mushrooms, she also delivered her Mike Will Made-It-produced hit “We Can’t Stop.”
“This is just who I am,” said Miley about her controversial image. “It’s only hard if you’re trying to be something you’re not. Being who you are is really easy, if you’re really true to that.”
During her sit-down with Matt Lauer, she addressed her feud with Sinead O’Connor. “I think she’s an incredible artist, I think she’s an awesome songwriter, and I was really inspired by her for my ‘Wrecking Ball’ video,” said Miley. “I don’t know how someone can start a fight with somebody by saying, ‘Hey, I really respect you and I really love what you did … you know what, you suck.’ That was kind of crazy.”
She plans to tour next year, but for now she’s just living in the moment. “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my whole life, so I’m really happy to be here.”
